Re: Breast or bottle in a restaurant?

I breastfeed because it's easier and since I'm a SAHM I don't usually pump or have a supply on hand. But I would try both and see which one suits you better, sometimes it would be nice to have someone else feed LO so you can have a hot meal

Well, I can now officially say 'breast' as I've breastfed at 2 restaurants in 2 days.

The more we nurse in public the more we create an environment in which others will be comfortable doing so, and hopefully one say our daughters won't have to worry about this...be brave!

I have always done what I have felt most comfortable with, and that has varied with each of my LOs. DD (9 months) is the pickiest nurser ever and refuses to nurse anywhere but our bedroom, side lying on the bed with dim lights and complete silence . I'm not exaggerating. So for her, I rely on finger foods and a bottle of BM. I have no issues with bringing bottles along but I do hate pumping when we are out and about!

With DD#1 bottle, but I quit EBFing early so she was FF mostly by the time I was recovered and ready to be out and about for a long length of time. Both DD#2 and DD#3 only BF, no covers, neither took (or is taking) a bottle. I do always wear a cami under my shirt if I'm not wearing a nursing tank so no skin shows and I try to pick a booth if possible mostly so I can put my feet up I also have to have a blanket (like an A&A one) in case she unlatches I can cover so no milk squirts everywhere, and if she's tired she likes to have part of her face covered.

DD never took a bottle so it was always breast. But I would usually nurse in the car first and that would hold her over for awhile. We didn't go to many restaurants when she was 4+ months...she didn't particularly enjoy restaurants then so it wasn't the least bit relaxing.

I always nursed in public, the way I think of it is I didn't want to use my "gold" stash up when I have the baby with me :-)

I BF in restaurants with a cover and it was fine. Do whatever makes you feel most comfortable.

Re: Breast or bottle in a restaurant?

I just breastfeed with a cover or blanket. My husband suggested bringing a bottle next time we're out, but I haven't decided if I want to do that or not.
